Pinsteps. Chapel of St. Abo Tbileli
Languages: ru, en

Here ends our long day, and we return to the pier from where we will go to the hotel. Just above the surface of the water is the ancient church of St. Abo of Tbilisi. He is considered the patron saint of the city. Abo was an Arab by birth who went with the Cartel king Nersa to Georgia from Baghdad, where Nersa was imprisoned but acquitted and released by the caliph to his homeland. Abo imbued with the Christian faith, traditions and customs of Georgia and preached to Christian Muslims in Arab Tbilisi. The events took place at the end of the 8th century during the reign of the Arabs in Georgia. Abo was beheaded, they burned his body and ashes were thrown into Kura from the high cliff of Metehi. Symbolically, this place at the foot of Metehi became the church of Abo worship, and above the cliff stands Gorgasali - the king of Georgia and the founder of Tbilisi.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Tbilisi. May 30, 2019

This day in Tbilisi was unexpected and unusual. It started outside the city, with a horse farm on the Tbilisi Reservoir. It is impossible to understand and feel Georgia and Tbilisi without seeing a Georgian on a horse. From there, the path ran to the Bridge Peace, the cable car, the fortress of Narikala and the old town, the marvelous sulfur waterfall and the fig gorge and of course to the royal baths. After the rest, we walked the streets of the ancient city of the Meydan district, the streets of Sioni and the Church of Sion and ended the day with a beautiful boat ride through the Kura River. It was an incredible adventure!
